Image Author: Thomas Child (Certain)
Creation: 1870-1889 (Certain)
Creation Place: (Assumed)
Topic: Bridal couple
Action: The bridal couple poses for a formal portrait, a very unusual topic even for situations re-created in the studio. This one is probably authentic, which means the man had to be closely connected with the photographer.
Image Particulars: The image is from about 1880. The stains on the bridegoom’s face are a printing accident. The backdrop text reads “double happiness.” The ornate frame around the image shows pseudo-Chinese motifs.
